In July 2018, CMS finalized a new case mix classification model, the Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM), that, effective beginning October 1, 2019 will be used under the skilled nursing facility (SNF) prospective payment system (PPS) for classifying SNF Patients in a covered part A stay.
This new payment model focuses on resident clinical characteristics rather than value based services provided to determine the medicare payment and replaces the current RUG system that has been in effect for over 20 years.
